What is the best laser for Tattoo removal in Portland Oregon?

Trying to find the right laser for your tattoo removal treatments can be overwhelming due to all the hype on the markets today. We want our clients to be well informed of the different lasers being offered in the Portland area, the pros and cons of each one, and why we chose the Q plus C laser along with its Square Spot Technology.

The Spectra and Medlite lasers use dye hand pieces to alter the laser beam profile which does not target certain ink colors effectively, are cheaper made, and do not have the optimum square spot size.

The Alexandrite and Pico lasers have only one wave length that does not target the inks specifically. Although they have a faster nano second technology they do not have a square spot beam profile that is considered to be the least obtrusive to your skin, and often the 755 wave length stops short of darker and redish colored inks. Many artists use a combination of colors in their tattoos that are unseen to the naked eye!

The Q plus C laser has the multiple wave lengths that target all the specific ink colors, is not altered by dye hand pieces, and it does have the square-spot technology. For these reasons, our tattoo removal clinic in Portland chose the Q plus C laser to give people the absolute best results possible for each treatment.

You Can’t Change Physics!

According to an article published by The Journal of Laser and Health Academy –
You Can’t Change Physics: In the world of tattoo removal, the two most important factors a wavelength has is (1) how deep the wavelength penetrates the skin and 2) what color(s) does the wavelength target. When taking into account where ink colors reside within the skin, research has proven the best wavelength to successfully target dark pigment (Black, Dark Blues, etc.) is the ND:Yag 1064. The best wavelength to target the difficult Blue and Green colors is the Ruby 694 and the only wavelength to target Red is the KTP 532.
